Permanent Make Up by Natalia Leon

PERMANENT MAKE-UP - DESCRIPTION

Now we can affirm that the desire to improve one`s looks somehow was born at the same time as mankind. As a proof, scientists found sticks for coloring, lips and eyelashes in the caves of primitive men. In Ancient Egypt , Babylon, Assyria, Greece, and Rome people used decorative make-up very skillfully – pastes, paints, ointments and herbal potions.

Since ancient times people have been painting their bodies and faces and putting on them tattoos.

Indian war paint and mask-like tattoos of New Zealand Maori are widely known. Tattooing was considered sacred, reflecting social status and valor of a warrior while at the same time decorating body. While being tattooed Maori were singing:

Let each line be drawn!
Let the images be beautiful
On the body of a big and wealthy man.
On the body of man who can`t pay
Let them be deformed
Leave them unfinished…

The eternal desire of women to be beautiful is as strong in today`s rushed and stressful lifestyle as it was in the ancient times. We dream to look well-groomed and stylish anytime, anywhere. The art of cosmetology is constantly being updated with new services, including permanent make-up. For those who choose permanent make-up dreams come true. The idea of that procedure is the following: a make-up artist inserts a special pigment,or colorant, at the 1mm depth under the skin using a special device. In a few years, with the process of skin renewal, the pigment comes up to the skin surface and is almost washed out, which allows for periodic updates according to customers` wishes.

Only a permanent make-up artist with knowledge of dermatology, cosmetology and make-up can successfully accomplish that delicate task, especially since the results will be visible on one’s face during several years.

Permanent make-up is a color-correcting method for lips, eyebrows, and eyelids which allows you to have the desired look without damaging skin injure.

This procedure is widely advertised and many women, who follow the cosmetics news very closely, would love to find a professional eyes, lips and eyebrows permanent make-up artist. Unfortunately, there are still many salons offering permanent make-up of poor quality – blurred and greased eyeliners, wrong lips contour or eyebrows that change color. All these happen because of the low skill level of some permanent make-up masters.

Almost any woman has necessary indications for permanent make-up. Some might just need permanent make-up for lips, others for eyebrows and others still for eyes, while some could benefit from correcting several facial features.

The procedure of scar, skin defect or areola camouflage, or tattooing should be explained here separately. After surgery some clients need to make corrections in order to feel more confident and comfortable. Here the permanent make-up plays not only decorative or aesthetic function but can also relieve insecurities and discomforts while raising your self-esteem.

Eye make-up simplifies the task of everyday decorative make-up for mature women and those who wear glasses. Your beauty will be at your side anytime and in any situation!

Permanent make-up is meticulous, almost “jewelry” work. The most important and difficult part here is the correct technology of pigment insertion. This includes the depth of pigment insertion, perfect lines and uniformity of coloration. That is why the process of choosing the right permanent make-up artist is very important. You should only entrust your face to the master with skillful hands and artistic taste.

Many clients wrongly assume that the permanent make-up can be done 1 visit to the make-up master. Unfortunately, in 98% of cases further correction is required mainly due to the fact the color pigment allocates itself heterogeneously. The percent of its final fixation in epidermis is different for everyone:during the healing process, 20% – 60% of color is rejected. Rehabilitation plays an important role in the whole process: it is up to the client to adhere to all recommendations and contraindications.
